Recently the New York Times published the shocking story of Sherry Johnson.
Johnson was raped by a 20-year-old member of her church and became pregnant in Florida and learned very quickly that Christianity can be very evil and cruel to its adherents.
“It was forced on me,” she told the Times.
(See, authorities had begun sniffing around because she was pregnant with a 20-year-old’s child, so church official made the decision that the best way to avoid embarrassment was to marry her off to her rapist).
"My mom asked me if I wanted to get married, and I said, ‘I don’t know, what is marriage, how do I act like a wife?’” Johnson remembers today, many years later. “She said, ‘Well, I guess you’re just going to get married.’"
So she was. A government clerk in Tampa, Fla., refused to marry an 11-year-old, even though this was legal in the state, so the wedding party went to nearby Pinellas County, where the clerk issued a marriage license.
"Johnson was raped by both a minister and a parishioner, and the judge approved the marriage to the rapist who caused her to give birth at the age of 10 so that the investigation would end," reports Oppositionreports.com.
“What we want is for you to get married,” the judge told her.
“It was a terrible life,” Johnson says, noting that she missed school and spent her time changing diapers for what would eventually be nine children. Her husband would occasionally disappear and leave her to deal with everything.
“They took the handcuffs from handcuffing him,” she says.
"How can this happen? Because it’s perfectly legal. In most states, it is perfectly legal for a man to marry a child. While some have at least passed laws limiting the age to 16 or 17 and above, most have no limit whatsoever. Child marriage, which the United States condemned in other countries as a “human rights abuse that contributes to economic hardship” in a State Department document last year, is a practice that must end," says John Prager.
This story is very shocking and alarming. It is terrible if someone marries an 11-year-old child. At this age the children are immature for a sexual life. And the marriage is particularly alarming because then the children often have no chance to learn. In Germany, a 14-year-old teenager can have sex. This is a normal age, but not for marriage. Marriage is very difficult as a social element.
Florida is a part of the Western world... And many Florida residents are laughing at the Muslims who marry immature children... Do not they know that this is happening in their own state?
Sex with immature children must be strictly forbidden! The pedophiles must be severely punished!
The religions must not rape our children!
